Video: Ichiro Suzuki collects career hit No. 4,000

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Missed Ichiro's historic hit? Now you can watch it 4,000 times if you want to.

Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki laced a single in Wednesday night's contest against the Blue Jays, giving him career hit 2,722. Remember, though, that Ichiro played for nine seasons in Japan before coming to the majors, where he collected 1,278 hits: last night's single gave him 4,000 for his career.

It's excellent that his teammates and Major League Baseball are recognizing this milestone in any capacity, given it's been a question for a long time how, if Ichiro got to 4,000 combined hits, people would react. You've got announcers into it, though, as well as the Blue Jays on the field, and MLB put this moment in their "Must C: Classic" video collection -- he's maybe not going to be as official and in the books as Ty Cobb and Pete Rose, but at least the moment didn't simply pass by quietly.
